Re: Hayes - Analysis of Attributive Participle and Relative Clause

Sorry, I wasn't sure how much I am allowed to cite on here and the information is kind of spread out. I was relying on people already having a copy/having read it.
I have added a photo of the relevant sections from pages 63-64 on restrictivity and then then 136-137 on non-restrictivity

Hayes - Analysis of Attributive Participle and Relative Clause

I am reading Michael E. Hayes work on the attributive participle and relative clauses in the New Testament and am confused. Hayes talks about restrictive and non-restrictive strategies.

Re: Contract Verbs

Mike, do you think that Caragounis’ “Development of Greek and the New Testament” would also be a good resource for this?

Mike, as always - thanks.

Contract Verbs

Are there any works that deal with the development of the contract verbs diachronically? I am interested in knowing if there was originally a principle that determined whether a verb took an epsilon, alpha or omicron contract (or indeed none).

Ancient scribal habits by modern standards

Possibly a really stupid question but I have been thinking about how we analyse ancient texts such as the bible.

Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Sorry, was walking and typing on my phone (bad practice) so wasn’t paying as much attention to spelling as I should. Just one further query then, being slightly dense. Apposition explains or clarifies the word it is related to (I think), this would mean it would be saying “he made from one man every...
